Maybe. It's true that Koreans are smart, and have very capable
companies and workers who take pride in doing a good job, and a
government onside in crafting national industrial policies and
ensuring their success. But that may not be the whole story.
Exchange your Canadian dollars for Korean Won and go to Korea to shop:
you'll get more stuff than if you spent the money in Canada.
Undervaluing foreign currencies attracts foreign investment. (Look at
Canada's economic success in the nineties: then, an American dollar
invested in Canada bought a lot!)
